Details: ALSO TO GO. We are fairly slaughtering the old land marks. These are tile architectural, ones, and often enough, they are among tile best. Nor could it be otherwise. Built in the places of most value, naturally that stay there, and so down they must come in order to allow of better on their sites. The latest to come under sentence is, it appears, what we used to call the Old Immigration Offices, formerly a convict barrack, and later progressively anything, with, with the latter, extension to suit, and .designed quite regardless of the look. The condemned building is at the top of King-street, and in its way a perfect example of its order of architecture. It was put up under the auspices of that remarkable man, Governor Macquarie, whose name is plastered over the face of the earth as it is, simply because he started early, never stopped, and knocked off late. In order to do something, if anything is possible, to save the old building, the Institute of Architects have been getting busy with a pro test, but the opinion is hazarded that it will be quite in vain
